Aspray is a White-collar franchise operating a proven business model within the financial services industry.
The franchise offers a loss assessing and property reinstatement service representing policyholders at the point they need to make a claim on their insurance because they have damage to their property.
Aspray specialise in managing property damage insurance claims from notification to completion of repairs. Our market is any business owner or homeowner who has to make a claim on their insurance and we gain business from various sources.
James Whittle founded Aspray in 2005 after gaining extensive experience in the franchise industry.
Since then, Aspray has become a national, award winning franchise, operating a tried and tested business model. 2 territories are company owned, allowing the company to continue to develop and improve its customer centric proposition at the “coal face”, with all other live territories being run by franchisees.
For over 13 years, the Aspray franchisees have successfully represented the policyholder (homeowners and business owners) at the point they need to make an insurance claim UK wide.

A large portion of the training is office-based using simulated exercises via case studies. It is important that new franchisees experience as much practical application as possible during their induction training.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
The operation of an Aspray franchise requires different roles to be performed at different times.
Franchisees may find themselves Attending a breakfast networking event, then visiting a customer and assessing and scoping the property damage in the morning, negotiating and speaking with insurance companies by the afternoon, and finishing the day discussing the progress made with the customer with a head office claims handler.
Other days might be spent working from home, making calls, putting schedules of work together, general administration, and speaking to contractors or insurers.
